So close to death, Maman must have felt free then and ready to live it all again. She represents the enjoyable life Meursault wants, and he misses her while in jail. In spite of my willingness to accept this glaring certainty, I simply couldn't. So, he has to assume Meursault is either lying to him or is trying to taunt him. He befriends Raymond, a popular pimp and part time guard. He refuses to help his lawyer, denies the existence of god, has no belief in Jesus and shows no remorse at all.

Analysis: The Outsider by Albert Camus

the outsider book albert camus

They assume a bond, which Meursault himself does not feel. And he has no sense of the future, no sense of right and wrong, and no sense of human feelings - especially any feelings that are not his own. That being said, he's not an inherently malicious guy like his friend Raymond, who is a pimp and a wife-beater who does stuff like has sex with his ex-girlfriend after pretending to make-up with her, then spit in her face. While on a vacation in an Algerian beach with Raymond, the weird guy aka Meursalt shoots an Arab who was after Raymond. Then a few seconds later, he shoots the dead body four times more.

November's Reading group: The Outsider by Albert Camus

And yet he uses circumstances to make us empathize with this man's absurd experience with the universe. While existentialism suggests that there is no inherent meaning in life and we should accept it, thereby should define our lives and take responsibility to live by it; absurdism says that the very acceptance the absurd condition of life is the onset of true existence since while accepting the absurd situation one must not stop search for meaning for life. ميرسو إذن مختلف، غريب، فماذا إذن عن العبثية؟ إنها ضاربة في الرواية، فالجريمة التي ارتكبها ميرسو، كان يمكن تجنبها، لقد قتل شخصاً لا علاقة له به، من أجل شخص لا تربطه به علاقة قوية، لقد ساعد ميرسو إنساناً منحطاً بلا دوافع كافية، فقط لأنه طلب منه ذلك!! This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. And sometimes I think if this book can be reviewed at all. When she laughed I wanted her again. At her funeral, he expresses none of the expected emotions of grief.

Quotes from The Stranger by Albert Camus

the outsider book albert camus

How many times in life have you felt out-of-place entering a room? It is during his incarceration that Meursault feels the bond between his feeling of absurdity and the absurdity of the world, and claims it as his own, accepting on a conscious level something which he has known only on a subconscious level to this point. En ambos casos, bicho y extraño, producen repulsa en aquellos que los juzgan, en una sociedad que los ve como individuos de otra especie, distintos e inquietantes y, por tanto, peligrosos. Hitler was mad as hell, all the German soldiers were just indifferent. نه این که خودخواه یا بی عاطفه باشه، اصولاً متوجه خوشی و ناخوشی دیگران نیست. But what caused his indifference? Life is short and we should just get on with it. We've also got a complete about The Stranger , with three weeks worth of readings and activities to make sure you know your stuff. كامو هو الأديب الفرنسي الوجودي الشهير، ولد في الجزائر المحتلة حينها من فرنسا في سنة 1913 م، فلذا تدور روايته هذه هناك، وكذا روايته الأخرى الطاعون، كل من قرأوا هذه الرواية تحدثوا تقريباً عن شيئين الأول هو العبث، والثاني هو الغربة، عبثية ما يحدث في الرواية للبطل، وكذلك غربة البطل وعدم فهم المجتمع له.

The Stranger

the outsider book albert camus

The world's Meursaults are each a stranger to society and they're met with disbelieving eyes, even if they're honest. He simply is, and is content with that. Secondly, the very glaring message of indifference rather fires back against Camus's message of non-conformity. The game is how we play it: we add our beliefs - thoughts - feelings - choices. Meursault encounters the brother of Raymond's Arab girlfriend. Or, you know, you can just read The Stranger because it's a crazy-important and seminal text of the 20th Century and helped Albert Camus win a Nobel Prize.

November's Reading group: The Outsider by Albert Camus

He killed a man and then shot his corpse four times for good measure. Because, in reality, from the moment judgement was passed, the evidence my sentence was based on seemed ridiculously out of proportion to its inevitable conclusion. . أعرف أن كلامي السابق غامض، ولتوضيحه سأروي قصة شخصية، قبل سنوات حضرت جنازة حزينة، كانت أول حالة موت مباشرة، أول جنازة أحضرها ويكون المدفون شخص أعرفه، مجرد تلك الفكرة بأن إنسان كان يذهب ويجيء، يتحرك، يتكلم، يأكل، يضحك ويغضب، ومن ثم انتهى، هذه الفكرة الهائلة ملأت قلبي ففاض بحزن جديد، حزن لم أعرفه ولم أجربه من قبل، وحيث وقفت هناك في المقبرة الجرداء، تسفيني الريح، وتصليني الشمس، ويدفعني الزحام، وتغرقني أصوات الناس من حولي، شعرت بقلقٍ غريب، فالحزن في داخلي سماوي شفاف، أريد أن أفهمه، أن أتملاه، ولكن فوضى الناس من حولي، والحرارة والعطش، جعلت الحزن يتراجع قليلاً ليحل محله وجودي أنا، جوعي وعطشي وتعبي، كان ذلكم الشعور بالنسبة لي مخزياً، كيف يمكن لهذا أن يكون!! To feel it so like me, so like a brother, in fact, I understood that I had been happy, and I was still happy. Now, we've come to a part where I partly agree with Camus but still not quite. I felt the urge to reassure him that I was like everybody else, just like everybody else. The novel is an exercise in abstract thought and carries no abiding message, and yet it is wonderfully constructed; the conclusion set in motion during the opening lines, it moves inexorably towards Meursault as his life is carried away from him.

If he wasn't executed, he would have died sooner or later. I got a telegram from the home: 'Mother deceased. And this particular message is the worst for me. Aunque Meursault dispara, al menos el primero de los disparos lo acomete como ido, como si la cosa no fuera con él, como si, de la misma forma que se produce, pudiera no haber sucedido, sin motivación alguna, como algo que le ocurre. It surprises him when he answers genuinely and others are so surprised.

Analysis: The Outsider by Albert Camus

the outsider book albert camus

Rather than expressing his feelings, he comments to the reader only about the aged attendees at the funeral. Terry Otten has studied in detail the relationship between Meursault and his mother. His austere search for moral order found its aesthetic correlative in the classicism of his art. Ou peut-être hier, je ne sais pas. Intellectually, Camus makes a point.
